Meant to rescue a kerbal trapped around the sun in an orbit as low as… However low you are when you’re in a circular orbit going 20,000 m/s.

Be efficient or you will die.

Also, start up the ions about 20 minutes before periapsis over Kerbin to propulsively capture. But if you want more fireworks, aim for a periapsis of 40 km. Or was it 30?

Anyway, it worked beautifully. I don’t know if it’ll work again, but the heatshield and stuff exploded under Jeb and cushioned his fall nicely, so no parachutes needed.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
